Swords & Soldiers 2 will take up arms on the Wii U eShop, just as its predecessor did in the WiiWare section of its Wii Shop Channel in 2009. Ronimo Games' action strategy sequel sensibly adds fresh units and spells, which should help relations between the Viking and Demon races develop peacefully. Or dissolve into sidescrolling wars of brawn and wits. You know, whichever.
A third faction will be announced later on, but you can check out the first brawls between the Vikings and Demons above.
Just a few weeks ago, Ronimo Games announced its newest production: Swords & Soldiers II. Today the first details and images emerge from the Dutch game studio. As in the original Swords & Soldiers for WiiWare, the game features lots of side scrolling strategy action. Players will again be able to take control of the powerful Vikings and their array of devastating spells. For the sequel their army has been reworked and strengthened by new units and spells.
They will need it however, as they're facing a new threat in the form of Demons roaming their lands. These Demons don't seem to care about anything but destruction, throwing everything they have into every encounter. Even their own lives don't appear to be very important to them, as some of them hurl themselves towards the enemy running on explosives. Literally.
Apart from the Demons, there will a third faction that will be revealed at a later date. To see the updated Vikings and the new Demons in action, check out the new trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EogvbPzNTRI
